BERNARDO SILVA: BEST OF 20
Pep Guardiola stated before our final game against Brighton,that the diminutive playmaker was the league’s best performer.
Few would argue with that opinion.
It spoke volumes of Bernardo’s impact on the 2018/19 campaign.
Boundless energy, a physicality that belies his stature, mesmerising dribbles, defence-splitting passes and important goals.
Bernardo provided them all this season and was at the forefront as the Fourmidables swept the board in England.
He started as he intended to go on, smashing home on the opening day against Arsenal and can count the aforementioned Liverpool performance and a Manchester derby goal amongst a trove of first-rate performances.
He dazzled in multiple positions, too.
Tormenting full-backs on the left and right flanks or probing from a more central position, the 24-year-old was a threat from all over the pitch in a season in which he performed to the highest quality throughout.
His entry into the PFA Team of the Year was, as they say, a shoe-in.
